Neutron Monitoring at the Area of IRC “Pamir-Chakaltaya” for Radiation Safety Control

  • V. M. SkorkinEmail author


The results of neutron monitoring at the high-altitude area of the International Research Center “Pamir-Chakaltay” at an altitude of 4370 meters above sea level are presented. Measurements with the help of radiometers PDA-Pack Eye, МКS-RМ1401К and RSU-01R revealed an excess of 5–7 times the neutron flux density at the 2-tier X-ray emulsion chamber in the hangar and in the storage areas of lead and rubber plates. At the same time, instrument readings experienced significant (up to 30%) fluctuations in time.
